We could always hope that it will help out if new Defense Buildings are introduced...

Oh oh Gree

My guess is they will make defensive buildings useful again like they did with valor and cash units and casualty reduction boosts.

Can you give us a hint how much the building will cost?
I don't care about the boost unit, hopefully it will have a good payout :)

Pay out comes from selling it once you take the upgrade as far as you plan lol. The expansion seems to be more valuable then the actual buildings lately

Do you have any info on the upgrade cost and building payout?

Building is out now - I have 10% reduction and +24% output and it's about $112M cost, 1.9M payout 24h. About the same size as the last LTB.

This is a great LTB.

THANK YOU GREE..this is a great LTB..i already love it cant wait to get it to 10 and help my 92m iph..and next one make it a costly 48 hr build but not worried about that right now this is great:D

07-08-2014, 02:44 PM
first Le I will be upgrading because it will help my iph and not be raided constantly, thanks again, keep these sort of buildings rolling out with the 24 and 48 hour outputs!

Are anybodies build time upgrades being used? Mine aren't...

Also would be awesome for Gree to explain just how the Building defense boost works and/or is useful because it has long been thought to be utterly useless.

Building defense is a clue.

Raiding might become more difficult if buildings can somehow factor in to repelling attacks

Isn't it possible to re-release all the LE Buildings at original cost (or gold cost), and without the unit rewards?

SPWD
07-08-2014, 03:43 PM
Wow can't wait for that building defence lmfao! What are you thinking gree,you come out with a good building then do that,why do you ALWAYS have to screw something up?
Why not a 10% upgrade cost or buildings payout or..............well anything but that!

No, because then they wouldn't be limited time. Also, the first buildings didn't even have units, and re-releasing them would be a slap in the face to people who got them originally, considering how difficult that was. This building has a good payout and a (hopefully) soon to be useful boost.

Kennetth
07-08-2014, 03:53 PM
Awesome Gree, exactly what we want in an LE.

As for the building defense bonus, I'm very curious if this is a precursor to updating the defense building component to the game, or maybe I'm reading too much into it.

The topic has been covered so extensively, I consider continued questions on this to be trolling. Then again CJ opened that can of worms and Gree hasn't put the lid back on it. We get a great building at present and people are still bemoaning for a time machine to the past. It's pathetic at this point.

Tadaaah,

Please seriously consider having devs change boost associated with final upgrade. Defense buildings have long been obsolete in this game. Having a boost does not make them relevant. Please alter boost to something that is still relevant to current game play.

Thanks for any consideration given to this request.

Evil M.

Agree. Please change the boost. This current boost is absutely useless.

Ferr had all defense buildings to lvl 10 and he went to 0 allies. Still had 8k defense from his buildings.. So a 10% boost will give me an extra 800 defense (if I had all buildings at 10).. So I will go from 620,000,000 defense to 620,000,800 defense.. Are you serious?

We need a 4,000,000% boost to defense buildings to make them relevant at all

Even though I disagree with the boost, I heavily disagree with retroactively changing an award because of complaining. Gree should look at the feedback and keep this in mind for future quests.

Rather than change the boost, retroactively change the building defence stats for the buildings.

It's only code, those building stats are sitting in a master array somewhere that the code references. All they need to do is delete the old numbers and insert new ones.

Bingo, everything becomes relevant again, including the boost.

Probably 30 minutes work for a competent code writer. Wait, what did I just say? :p

The among of players going too be able too get this building too level 10 is very slim, As long as free has plans too re-introduce defence buildings so they have a purpose again then i don't have a problem with a building defence rewards. Im just thankful we finally have another good 24 hour buildings to upgrade again

Danger Mouse
07-08-2014, 07:59 PM
Given you can get 25K+ defence for about $15million in game cash now for a unit, this should form the benchmark for what you get upgrading a defence building for $15 million. Given buildings are indestructible, maybe charge a premium for in game cash upgrade costs to get the same defence score as you would get for a destructible unit.

But pay $50 million to upgrade a defence building for 150 defence points??? Times that by 100 and you get $50 million to upgrade to 15k defence. Suddenly that looks like something everyone would want to do and keeps defence buildings relevant into the future. By relevant I mean for the great bulk of MW players. If you've already priced yourself out of the market spending thousands in top 50 factions, well, that's another matter isn't it.

A benefit of this to Gree would be that suddenly everyone down the pack is going to need all those attack boosts they put out in order to raid, so those events where attack boost is the prize becomes more attractive to everyone.

All it takes is for one Gree code writer to up building defence stats by a factor of 100 at least. That's it. Simple. So why not do it?

Most people barking about the bonus unit won't even get it to level 10 in the limited time, if ever. Lol

I used to have about a 30% discount on the cost of the building and the upgrades, sadly not anymore. I heard there was a new version 4.x coming out to fix the problem but I've seen nothing. Anyone else heard of this?

Promised upgrade with promised fix has already been released, version 4.2. Apparently, and this really surprises me, nothing happened. Knock me over with a feather.

Please put in the costs to upgrade without the bonus reductions.

It's important to know how much this costs.

I know Gree's wording of things is rarely..... Precise? However, I'm considering that the wording posted is "+10% building defense", not, "+10% defense building defense".

What if it adds 10% total defense to every building, as the wording implies? Then everyone would scramble to finish it.

Clarification would be nice. Or rather, confirmation that your wording is accurate as stated.
